Bookable features established authors and emerging talent in conversation with host and author Amanda Stern, author of Little Panic and creator of the Happy Ending Music & Reading Series at Joe’s Pub and Symphony Space. With an immersive sound experience designed around each episode, Bookable takes you on an audio exploration of a book—usually new, sometimes classic and occasionally obscure but always worth knowing about.
Founded by Amanda Stern in 2003, this iconic, long running series was chosen by New York Magazine, The Village Voice and NY Press as the best reading series in NYC, and singled out by the New York Times Magazine for helping to “Keep downtown, NY alive,” The Happy Ending Series featured the most interesting storytellers, writers, musicians, raconteurs and personalities, and required the readers to take one public risk, while the musicians, who performed two short sets with their original, lyric-driven music, were required to play one cover song and try to get the audience to sing along.
